UGA earns 3rd seed in 2015 SEC Basketball Tournament
The Georgia Bulldogs have earned the No. 3 seed in the 2015 SEC Basketball Tournament. Georgia gets a double-bye into the quarterfinal round on Friday.
Georgia will play either Ole Miss, South Carolina or Missouri at approximately 9:30 p.m. ET. South Carolina and Missouri face off in the first round on Wednesday, and then the winner of that game takes on Ole Miss on Thursday.
Yesterday, the Hoop Dawgs defeated Auburn 64-61 to finish the regular-season 20-10 overall and 11-7 in the SEC. The win gave UGA back-to-back 20-win seasons for the first time since 1996-98. Mark Fox is now only the second UGA head coach to accomplish that feat along with Tubby Smith.
Georgia is also a shoe-in for the NCAA Tournament, which would be their first since 2011. Most sites have the Dawgs around an eight or nine seed.
